on the economy. overall, auto sales were up 13% last month from a yearefore. among the u.s. automakers, ford sales were unchanged, g.m.'s were up 1.5%, chrysler reported a 12% increase. there hasn't been enough good news like that on the economy. the recovery, of course, is painfully slow and one of the biggest reasons is the recession in europe. the 27 countries of the european union add up to the world's- largest economy, but they're reportrecordnemployment. in spain, unemployment among young people is 50%. mark phillips went to barcelona to see what happens when an economy goes into freefall. >> reporter: spain can be a deceptive place. in the early autumn sunshine and in the markets groaning with foodstuffs it's difficult to tell this is a country with a collapsing economy and unemployment rate of 25% that threatens to take the rest of europe and maybe even the united states economy down with it. but wait until they close up at barcelona's boqueria market and follow the porters out back to where they dump the trash and you get a different impression. in spain these days, one person's gar
for you? >> i think they could decide the election for either one of us. look, we're basically in a tie, the president and i are. he's been president for four years, has outspent me massively in this campaign and yet he's still at a tie. and so the debates could well decide it one way or the other, i don't know. they may not have a lot of fireworks go off and perhaps they don't change things very much, but we're on track to win this. >> pelley: you know, in the debate you could get asked anything and i wonder, how do you prepare for that? >> well, i've been asked almost everything already.

evening. in the weeks before his death, u.s. ambassador chris stevens sent the state department several requests for increased encurity for diplomats in libya. stevens and three other beericans were killed this past september 11 in a terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and, in a separate attack that same night on a safe house where the consulate staff had been evacuated. stevens' memos were obtained by the house oversight and government reform committee, which is investigating the attacks, and our sharyl attkisson got ahold of the memos today. >> reporter: ambassador stevens ssrsonally pressed for strengthened security in a series of cables to state department headquarters in washington. on july 9, 2012, stevens sent a request for extension of temporary duty personnel. that refers to a 16-man military temporary security team with expertise in counterterrorism. they were set to leave in august but stevens asked to keep them through mid-september. on august 2, six weeks before he died, stevens requested protective detailed bodyguard positions, saying the added guards "will

: that last word, "capability," which he uses on his campaign website, significantly shortens the time before iran would reach romney's red line. his campaign refuses to specify what he means by "capability," but the term usually refers to iran's stockpile of enriched uranium. israeli prime minister netanyahu told the u.n. his own red line would come next spring or summer when iran is expected to have enriched enough uranium to build a bomb. president obama insists iran has not yet made a decision to go for the bomb and even with enough enriched uranium would still need a year or more to build one. >> america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. >> reporter: an aide to romney says the governor also believes there is still time to pressure iran into giving up its nuclear program but not as much time as the president believes. >> pelley: david, thank you. there are almost 90,000 americans fighting in afghanistan tonight. both candidates agree nearly all of them should be home by the end of 2014. but are the afghans ready to fi

-atlantic anyw to southern new england. so what does that mean for us? s?at means there's the ofssibility of storm-force winds, major coastal flooding, onwer outages, and in inland areas in the higher terrain regions, say western pennsylvania, maryland, virginia, and west virginia, we could be looking at some significant snows. how bad that coastal flooding is will depend exactly how strong the storm is, and the exact location where it makes landfall. on pelley: david, why does it make that left turn you're talking about? >> reporter: that's the real tricky part of this and the very rusual aspect of this storm. what we have across the atlantic right now, we looking at what we kill a big block, and basically it's a road block. it's preventing anything from turning back out to sea. even irene moved up along the coast and parallel but scooted on .n out. that central atlantic block is probably going to force the iorm westward. the cold pool over the eastern united states, that's the winter storm you were referring to you. , thaake all the tropical energy, all the heat from the tropics, you co

will be on the stage behind me. can the president use this stage to bounce back from what he admits was a bad night at the first debate. a night that turned out to be a game changer. after that first debate, the race went from dead even to a slight but steady lead for governor romney-- though within the margin of error. but now have a look at this. the latest gallup poll out today shows he has opened a four-point lead over the president, 50% to 46%. that is outside the margin of error. so a small but genuine and growing lead. and this was surprising today. gallup shows that in the tossup states that are likely to tip the balance, romney has cut deeply into one of the president's major strengths. he still trails mr. obama among women, but now by just a single point. we'll see if later polls bear that out. we have a team of campaign 2012 correspondents covering the debate and we're going to go first to jan crawford with the romney campaign. >> reporter: well, scott, if you look at these polls, one of the reasons it's so striking to see governor romney's increased support with women voters is that ear
asked david martin to tell us more. >> reporter: u.s. officials say a cyber attack against aramco, the world's largest oil producer, has been traced to hackers inside iran. another volley in an increasingly high stakes war going on in cyberspace. and defense secretary panetta warns potential enemies, including iran, are developing the capability to launch devastating attacks. >> the collective result of these kinds of attacks could be a cyber pearl harbor. an attack that would cause physical destruction and the loss of life. an attack that would paralyze and shock the nation and create a new profound sense of vulnerability. >> reporter: iran does not have that kind of capability yet, but u.s. officials say several recent cyber attacks have been traced to hackers inside iran. panetta stopped short of blaming iran, but in a speech last night described the cyber attack against aramco which occurred two months ago. >> more than 30,000 computers that it infected were rendered useless and had to be replaced. >> reporter: the attack-- using a virus called shamoon-- did not disrupt oil pr
, you tell us about the wind, but so often the damage comes from the storm surge, too. what do you expect there? >> you know, that's really a dangerous aspect of the storm. we talk about losing lives in hurricanes and coastal storms, flooding is the number one reason for it. so people need to pay close attention to what their emergency management is saying if they live in those zones. and we have two things happening to make this a bad situation. the first one is the angle of approach. the storm is going to be coming in directly from the east to the west, and that's going to allow the maximum amount of water to pile into these vulnerable areas. then, wouldn't you know it, we have a full moon on monday combined with multiple tide cycles that the storm is going to be occurring through, meaning we're probably going to have more than one high tide that we have to deal with. so it's a real high risk for storm surge flooding in addition to everything else we've been talking about: the wind and even the snowfall that may occur well inland. >> pelley: high wind; high water. david, thank yo
